BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced Thursday that Virginia Tech will play a home and away football series with the University of Nebraska beginning in 2008.

The Hokies and Huskers are scheduled to play at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on Sept. 20, 2008 and will meet at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field in Blacksburg on Sept. 19, 2009.

"We are excited to have this home and away series with one of college football's elite programs," said Jim Weaver, Tech's director of athletics.

The Nebraska series replaces a two-game series with Wisconsin. Tech and Wisconsin are currently working together to move their series to a later season.
